Sandeman House, City of London

Sandeman House is a Grade II* listed building set in a cobbled courtyard off St Swithin’s Lane in the City of London. Whilst the main house dates back to the late 18th century, it is built over medieval stone vaulted cellars which are thought to date back to the 14th century and which were used until quite recently by the Sandeman Port Company.

The property had been converted some years ago into apartments which were looking very tired and dated. The brief was to remodel and refurbish these to provide five exclusive serviced apartments consistent with the property’s excellent location in the centre of the City. Particular challenges included sensitive repair and redecoration works to the external fabric and close liaison with a neighbouring hotel to the north and a restaurant at ground floor level, both of which had shared access and escape routes through the building. The project was completed and handed over in November 2017.

Other members of the project team included Utility (Interior Design), AOC Interiors (Construction) and Dodds & Shute (Furniture).
